“Volunteers play such an important role in helping these nonprofits accomplish their goals,” center Manager Lynn Lauritzen said. “I love helping people find just the right fit for their interest and skills.
“The Let’s Volunteer Day is a way for us to encourage groups and individuals to come out and tackle a project that might not be part of the day-to-day needs of an organization.”
